I stayed here for a week with my mother and my teenage daughter. We were warmly welcomed by staff and were able to leave our bags in the office before our check in time. Throughout our stay the staff were always very helpful and if we needed anything they were always able to provide it. This included gluten free options... More

Lovely welcome, very nice rooms, superb breakfast and very clean pool area. We loved our stay and would happily return. A few miles from CT centre, but an easy 15 minute drive and no issue to us. A tiny criticism is that the soundproofing between rooms is not great, but it's a minor thing and is heavily outweighed by the... More

I have visited the Wild Olive several times in the past. It is an excellent B&B. You very much get the feeling that you are visiting your family! The rooms are well-equipped with a fair-sized outdoor pool. Breakfast is of a high quality and the staff is unfailingly friendly. Its location makes it ideal for the rugby and cricket stadia... More

We stayed at Wild Olive Guest House in December 2013 with my family. The facilities and service is very great. I would recommend the guest house to anybody visiting Cape Town. I will certainly visit again.

Wild Olive is well situated for Newlands, has good clean and well furnished rooms. The garden is pleasant and there is a pool with seating around, plus an honesty bar. Breakfast is fine, only the coffee disappointed us. Staff were very helpful and eager to please, especially as I needed somewhere to keep a cycle.

A very well run and comfortable bed and breakfast. My room was spacious with all the amenities and it had an en suite with both shower and bath, a rarity in today's establishments. Very conveniently located with a superb breakfast. Highly recommended.
